Kimono Girl Illustration

May 5, 2018


As you know, kimono is popular Japanese traditional culture.

However, Japan has many unique culture are not traditional.

Manga, animation are that.


Many Japanese are raised up with Manga and animation.

When I was a child, popular anime were Sazae-san, Dr.Slump,The Return of  Lum and so on.

Japanese has enjoyed a lot of manga and anime.


Thus these are amateur illustrator in Japan.

Ms.Sakura Kasaki is one of them.

She is a high school student and she is also my neighborhood.

One day, she and her parents and I talked about her picture.

I recommended her painting anime girl in kimono.



Therefore she started to study kimono and kimono tradition.

Patterns, seasonal color, traditional color coordination, style, and so on.

After that, she have painted three pictures.


The theme of these picture is spring.

Kimonos in her picture are faithfully depicted in tradition.


I am happy because one of my dream came true.

One of my dream is that; young people live in Japan have interests about kimono inspired by foreign people love kimono and Japanese tradition.





You can get these illustrations on my Etsy shop.

These are on sale as digital dates.


I want to know what reactions these pictures will get in near future.
